I am 33 years old. I have Hypothyroidism. My voice has been changed when I was pregnant. Please let me know, what may be the problem. Do I need to consult Endocrinologist or ENT specialist.

Hi Hypothyroidism can be the cause for hoarse or changed voice. Consult an Endocrinologist only. Share more details of your case so that I could recommend you homoeopathic medicine which will help you.

I am 21 yeas old. I am very poor in communication due to the feeling of insecurity and feeling that I don't have proper background in communication. This feeling was increasing day by day as I want to reduce it. Kindly provide a solution for this.

It can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it.

Stammering may be the indication of any underlying anxiety problems. See a clinical psychologist who can evaluate and give psycho therapies like relaxation training, cbt and so forth. If necessary the psychologist will refer you to a psychiatrist for medications. It is not a serious problem. If you have a strong will and follow the treatments/practices certainly you can overcome it. All the best.

My 3 years old daughter doesn't speak much. She says words to explain what she wants but she doesn't talk fluently. She is good with her motor skill, body balance. She even tries to trick me. I'm a single parent. My ex husband was violent with me in front of my daughter till she was around 2 years old. Is it possible that violence that my daughter has witnessed has effected her growth or language skill in someway. Also I work long hours each day, I hardly give my daughter 3-4 hrs a day. She is mostly with her maid. Should I seek some psychological treatment for my daughter?

Yes, the divorce and all the violence she has witnessed will have a bearing on this child. Being a girl child, she will also miss her father quite a bit now, and more later. It does not help that you don?t have much time to give her too. These years are most important to her and any way you can spend more time with her will diminish the total impact to a reasonable level, at least. Believe me, this is an investment with good dividends: otherwise you are looking at paying a great price for her and yourself, later. At this age she must talk incessantly, so this break up is certainly impacting her. She is angry and probably very sad. Divorce is always bad for the adults and worse for the kids. You have a responsibility to help her tide over the effects of this huge void in her life. You cannot obviously be father and mother to her, so a male figure around her will somewhat compensate this loss. You could go to a child psychologist both for assessment and some therapy. Don?t try to delay helping her on any front because it is easier to set things right as a preventive measure than as a curative one. She is already in a disturbed state but further negligence will lead to serious situations that at a later time even curative efforts may only nudge the issues and make it very difficult to do real justice.

Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, the best option is stammer therapy. Take care.

Hello, there is no medicines and surgeries for stammering. It requires your dedicated and constant monitering and excerises of co-ordinating breathing voices and articulation. It takes your patience and persistance to stop stammering. 1) donot worry about why it came as science has been trying to prove the causes since they came to know about the stammering. 2) if your speaking very fast slowing your speech is very important and first in stammering. 3) there is a speech jammer apps available on android market freely downloadable which will help you spesk slowly and fluently. 4) practice reading slowly. 5) most importantly you need to consult an speech language pathologist at the earliest. Thank you.

This is in reference with my wife who survived a stroke in Sep 2015. She has shown good recovery since then but yet unable to speak and her movements are very slow, I want to know if CITICOLINE will be a helpful drug to expedite her recovery in terms of movement and speech. Any help on her will be greatly appreciated.

Hi, this is regard your wife, post stroke every patient generally have a good recover phase atleast till 6 months with or without treatment but when its paired with medicine and therapy the recovery looks better. Since you have not given any speech therapy, you may not see any major improvements like before, so you need to ask your neurophysician regard the stimulants which can enhance the development but also I recommend you visit a local speech language pathologist also called as speech therapist who would guide you to assist your wife with the speech outcome.

Stammering or stuttering is a 100% curable problem. By the means of fluency therapy you can get it rectified. But intially you have to get it assessed for accurate diagnosis and treatment program.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

You have a problem with fear. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an ‘O’ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an ‘E’, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can. Being young it will be a lot easier to sort it out now. Being in late adolescence, this will also be your last chance to deal with this problem otherwise, it can become a permanent one.

Can anyone suggest speech therapist for curing stammering and speech disorder in adults.

MASLP
Speech Therapist, Noida
Stammering can be by muscle tightening or visible difficulty speaking which causes anxiety, fear, or loss of self-esteem. Some of the strategies you can use- 1-Speak slowly and simply. Try saying one syllable words, one at a time. Strive to have each word come out clearly before moving on to the next word. 2-Monitor your speech as you talk, looking for which words or mental states might cause stuttering to occur or worsen. 3-Don't be afraid to leave pauses or silence in your speech. Go at your own pace as you practice. 4-Practice words that you notice as problematic. 5-Gradually increase the length of words and sentences. Overtime you will work towards implementing problematic words in your speech. Consult SLP.
